Vokoun is eight wins away as Pittsburgh moves into the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Bruins. He's not riding the pine as Marc-Andre Fleury does the job; the 36-year-old is between the pipes living out the chance he never got with the Capitals.
In the everlasting quest to create more offense, the league's general managers recently approved trimming goaltending equipment, mostly having to do with the size of knee and leg pads.
Tomas Vokoun was understandably frustrated about his game earlier this week following a rough performance — four goals on 21 shots — against the Philadelphia Flyers. The veteran Washington Capitals goaltender said he knows himself pretty well — and that getting right back between the pipes to atone for his mistakes might not be the best thing.
With at least two of the better young goaltenders in the league in Michal Neuvirth and Braden Holtby, the Washington Capitals are in an enviable position. General manager George McPhee said he's in "no rush" to make changes.
Ask anyone in the Capitals' locker room about the goaltending situation all season, and they'll tell you pretty much the same thing: that they feel confident whether Michal Neuvirth, Semyon Varlamov or even Braden Holtby is in net.
